Nokia phones cannot compete with apple because they have a poor and slow platform nokians are best experto but if they would /will be enough brave to make another platform based on Linux like meego or better, they have potential to be a real killer we all eager to see the nokia,s own platform special a Linux based on

I do think Nokia still a lot of "Mobile telecommunication Patents". Hence Apple recently paid Nokia a huge bill in billions for using their technology without acknowledging their use of technology. Elop was the "trojan-horse" that was sent to kill and steal Nokia's huge array or mobile-related patents to microsoft.

I believe that the 3 biggest innovators in the early telecommunication world are:

Nokia, Motorola and Ericsson.

The rest innovated on what was already started by these 3.

AnonD-677638, 21 Aug 2017I am using a Samsumg phone but my heart belongs to Nokia. I too am using Samsung after Nokia. I tried a iPhone 4s but after using Symbian and my last Nokia being the N8. The iPhone was so limiting. I found Android to be like Symbian flexible and customizable. I will not go back to the Nokia brand made by HMD. Even though the compony is made of ex Nokia workers.

People still ranting nonsense, please read until the last sentence, there is no Nokia anymore, Nokia is dead, HMD is the company now and they just use name Nokia, so if you think is the same, definitely you delusional. It is up to HMD and true to create something new and bring best features from Nokia old times. Ozo and mimics of clearance sounds great, I hope they will catch up with competition and improve competition for everyone's sake :)

First brand to develop smartphones
First to introduce camera and internet in smartphone
First to give FM transmitter
First to offer high end camera tech Pureview
First to incorporate AMOLED and LED panels
First to use Corning Gorilla
First to use OIS (Lumia 920)
First to use Xenon flash
First to offer USB type C (Nokia N1 tab)
First to offer iris scanner (Microsoft lumia 950)
First to offer multitasking in phones
First to offer Wireless charging (Lumia 920)
First to offer Offline map (HereMap)
First to incorporate innovative techs like Clear black diplay, Carl zeiss, OZO audio, N-Gage, 41 mp sensor, 64 gigs of storage when phones were limited to 16 gigs, Puremotion HD display and the list can be endless as it offered large variety of phones in different ecosystem like Symbian, Meamo, Meego, Microsoft mobile, Android (X series) and now again back with android. If you go with a design line they were completely different phone N 92, N 95, N 97 and so on. Love Nokia father of all smartphones.

I couldn't control my tears after reading this.

808 could only handle its gigantic 41MP sensor thanks to Symbian. No other smartphone OS would work with its large dedicated image processor custom made by Toshiba. Neither will nowadays' flagship chipsets handle that sensor without serious lag hence we're not to see its sequel anytime soon.

It's a matter of time before Nokia buys up HMD if business goes well enough and phones are sold plenty. Most phones mentioned in the article are either still in my collection or I have owned them years ago. Nokia is great, synonymous for mobile tech.
